"Treat me kindly, my beloved friend, for no heart in the entire world is more grateful for your kindness than mine. Don't be angry with me for long, and don't lock me up as punishment. After all, you have your job, your friends, and your entertainment. I only have you."
The Alpine Humane Society of Brewster County, Texas began operation on
October 26, 1982 in response to an article in the October 14, 1982 issue of the
Alpine Avalanche (click to see the article) concerning the dreadful conditions at the so-called
shelter which was located near the old city dump. The purpose of the
Humane Society is to shelter homeless and abused animals, operate a
progressive adoption program, investigate abuse cases, and encourage the
spay/neutering of animals in order to control overpopulation.
In addition to membership dues, donations and fund raising events, AHS
is supported by interest from a more than $1 million trust established
when Dr. Lois Helen Cole left her entire estate to the Humane Society in
1996. As specified by Dr. Cole in her will, only the interest from that trust fund is accessible to AHS. Each year AHS funds more than $40,000 worth of veterinary fees in
Current 2013 AHS Board of Directors:
Ann Moore, President
